- Hey guys. I made the plunge. I had another thread on here asking about the s4 and ended up making a deal to get one. Hope to get it tomorrow. Coming from a Iphone5 and excited and a little nervous about the s4. So hoping that some of you more experienced with Android can help me out with a few things.
1. I use a Macbook Pro so is there anything i need to know about syncing the s4 with it? I already have my contacts synced with google so i'm good there and i know how to use google music and sync it with iTunes. My only concern is getting pics from the s4 to my iPhotos on my mac.
2. I've heard good and bad about Touch Wiz. Is there anything I need to tweak to help the s4 run smoother? I know I can download launchers which i'll probably end up doing but i've never rooted a phone before and I don't know if I need to.
3.Are there any really good apps that I should have on the s4? Coming from the restricted iOS, i'm really excited about the customization of Android but i am concerned about some of the little things like battery life.
4. Forgot one. I'm switching from the 5 so is there anything I need to know about before switching. I know there's been a problem with getting text messages and your supposed to turn off iMessage before switching so i'm probably gonna do that today and give it 24 hours to get out and hope that it works.
Any tips you could give to a rookie would be awesome!! Thanks guys!06-25-2014 06:40 AM

- i also went from a iphone to a galaxy s5 and love it will never go back as i love the customization lol but one thing i did miss was all the different notifications on the iphone lock-screen so to fix that i downloaded sidelock with than you can select any notification to the lock screen you like. If you move away from touch wiz and get a after-market launcher on a lot of then you can get the notification badges so you will have badges just like the iphone on your icons06-25-2014 09:53 AM
